There is a reason that you should start your build thread when you start building you car. As of the writing of this post, so much has been done to this machine. I can't recall every detail nor can I find all of my photo documentation of everything I did. The ultimate goal of this collection is to organize my own content but also to provide an outline on the challenges I have put myself through to achieve this. As a quick preface, the car was bought in 2013. I was a sophomore in high school at the time. Beyond mocking up some different wheels, which ultimately were never installed, the car remained totally stock. Once I got my license, I was able to convince my dad @tarafied1 to let me drive the car to school. This is where it all began! Following this came a series of modifications. Off the top of my head; Body Terminator front bumper cover Terminator rocker panels (side skirt things) Terminator rear bumper cover Terminator ducktail spoiler Terminator heat extractor hood Bullit/Mach 1 sail panels 99 Cobra tail lights Stinger modified springs Ford Racing FR500 wheels 17x9.5 F 17x10.5 R Tire stickers Mach 1 gauge cluster Steering column mounted oil pressure gauge pod Fancy short throw with no brand name, it does the job Shorty antenna, but my radio doesn't work anyway (not that I could hear it if it did work) SVT engine builders plaque that I bought from a forum member on another forum SVT license plate frame SVT window cling I really like SVT memorabilia. I also have several books that stay in the car! Exhaust Pacesetter long tube headers mounted with Mahle gaskets because my brother broke my Remflex Fabricated H-pipe Flowmaster American Thunder cat-back made for an IRS exhaust, mounted under my SRA with Pypes M80 weld in mufflers, flowmasters cut off and sold (yeah, IRS exhaust on an SRA. What are you gonna do, shoot me?) Engine 2005 Aviator aluminum block w/ SOHC Mustang Oil Pan Forged SVT crankshaft w/ forged SVT rods and pistons Mach 1 cams Mach 1 intake manifold and airtube Mach 1 throttle cable (this was way too expensive) Ford Racing high volume oil pump Lokar flexible dipstick tube All Motorcraft accessories (get that parts-store crap outahere!) Fabricated aluminum coolant tank, probably chinese (ask me how I know!) Modified 1998 Cobra coolant crossover Custom thermostat housing routing (don't do what I did, more on that later) Modified power steering reservoir bracket Custom alternator brackets Completely modified engine harness (SOHC Harness to DOHC Harness) EGR Delete with awesome plate that has a Cobra etched on it from eBay Rear O2 sensor delete Miscellaneous Aluminum clutch quadrant attached to an adjustable clutch cable Exedy stage 2 racing clutch Spectre chrome plated diff cover with replicated Ford markings A steering wheel cover that my dad bought when we got the car SOHC T45 style flywheel Fluid choices Royal purple trans and diff fluids Liqui-moly synthetic engine oil ---break in being done on conventional penzoil, no need to be concerned) Some extra trans fluid my dad had laying around for power steering fluid Conventional green coolant I will be updating this list as the mods come in, and there are pictures to come in the following. I also want to include some keywords so that this thread can be found. The reason being is that what I did to this car is not too extremely common, and I want to share my knowledge with as many people as possible. Besides, who wants to post build threads on svtperformance anyway??? DOHC swap into mustang, 32v swap, Aviator swap into mustang, SOHC to DOCH swap, 16v swap to 32v, DOHC mustang swap, dual overhead cam swap, DOHC swap, Aviator swap, Lincoln Mark VIII swap, Lincoln DOHC swap, 4v swap, 4v in Mustang GT, expensive and unnecessary swap, ridiculous overly complicated engine swap, overpriced Ford parts swap thread, you get the idea. This car has been a long time coming for a college student up to this point. I do not encourage anyone to repeat the process; it has been a nightmare and I could not have done it without the help from not only my father @tarafied1 and my brother, but also from the help of my close friends and coworkers. This has been expensive, frustrating, and inefficient. I could have 600hp for the money I spent if I had gone a different route but that ultimately was not the point. More on that later. Pics inbound!
